color pop.

i’ve been noticing this trend of painting a ‘faux’ wainscoting on walls these days — giving the illusion of wainscoting without the molding. just a swipe of bright color or some color blocking on a wall makes a room visually interesting, without spending a lot of time or money — just the cost of painting a pop of color. i like those kinds of diy fixer-uppers. easy on you, easy on the wallet and the look is eclectic and fun.

  1. I was wide awake and loving the pics until I saw that crunchy couch image from Clive Tompsett. Now I just want to take a lazy nap on that pillow-laden wonder. I am lovin’ that whole thing up there, pink half wall and all.

  2. I love these ideas! I keep thinking of making a slipcover for summer in the pink linen from IKEA that would be similar to the one in the above photo. The pink on that wall is very nice too. Oh, and that is is two-toned! OK, I just love that room!

  3. Love to know the wall color in the photo of the boho room and the lazy sofa. This is exactly the color I’m looking to paint my living room. Any way to find out.
